I'm sure "The Chairman of the Board" would have loved the experimental sounds of Tessa Makes Love
. With the Sinatra Centennial coming in December, I paired him up with some of my Songstress friends, from New York City.
Sinatra was raised in a devout Catholic household in Hoboken, NJ.

with the note "this is one of the most beautiful of songs"..
She Said~~Tessa, with Video: Ave Maria
The original words of Ave Maria (Hail Mary) were in English, being part of a poem called The Lady of the Lake
written in 1810 by Sir Walter Scott . The poem drew on the
romance of the legend regarding the 5th century British leader King
Arthur, but transferred it to Scott's native Scotland. In 1825 during a
holiday in Upper Austria, the composer Franz Schubert set to
music a prayer from the poem using a German translation by Adam Storck.
Scored for piano and voice, it was first published in 1826 as "D839 Op
52 no 6." Schubert called his piece "Ellens dritter Gesang" (Ellen's
third song) and it was written as a prayer to the Virgin Mary from a
frightened girl, Ellen Douglas, who had been forced into hiding.
